Germany manager Joachim Low confirms that seven of his squad players are showing symptoms of flu ahead of their World Cup quarter-final clash against France.

Germany manager Joachim Low has confirmed that seven of his squad players are showing symptoms of flu ahead of their World Cup quarter-final clash against France.

Days after Mats Hummels was ruled out of the game against Algeria due to sickness, the Nationalelf manager admitted that the ailment appeared to have spread to other members of the team.

Low told reporters: "Seven players are slightly ill with flu symptoms.

"It is not that bad at the moment and it could be partly about air conditioning, the travel, temperature differences. I do not want to make a drama of it. We hope the situation will ease."

Germany are expected to have both Hummels and Lukas Podolski available again for the all-European clash at the Maracana on Friday.
